Paule Dubois Dupuis believes being in the moment is the key to fully being alive. According to her mother, she speaks her mind much too frequently, and her art helps her express how she journeys through this world. Born in Quebec, Canada, Paule lived much of her adult life in Ottawa and Montreal and married her childhood sweetheart. Her family, including two then-teenagers, moved to San Francisco in 1999. Now she also a grandmother to four girls and a boy.
As a student, she couldn’t tolerate the classroom unless she was drawing or painting or, occasionally, writing a theatrical script. Paule started in her professional life as an autodidact, eventually even teaching others her watercolor methods. She largely abandoned that medium after feeling too constrained by the size of the paper. At the age of 36, Paule returned to University to complete her BFA, lecturing her children that school is beneficial at any age and that the only reason to stop following your dreams is if you’re dead. After graduating magna cum laude from Ottawa University, the family moved to California, where she studied at the San Francisco Art Institute. The population is denser in San Francisco than in Quebec, but the sun and water are her refuge and she paints in oil now to give her mind and body an outlet for stress, passion, love and sadness.
